Cabbage and Potato Gratin

Share

This recipe is very similar to a Polish cabbage and bacon casserole recipe that I published a couple of years ago. This recipe is vegetarian. I have to admit that this is so good that I don’t miss the bacon. Don’t get me wrong – I love bacon, but my vegetarian son is subtly pushing […]

Andean Potato and Cheese Soup (Locro de Papa)

Share

I have never cooked with queso fresco before. I saw some in Costco the other day, so I picked up a package. I bought 2 eight-ounce blocks, so you’ll probably see another cheese recipe or two before I use it up. Queso fresco (or “fresh cheese”), is mild, mellow and a bit salty and a […]

Polish Cabbage, Potato and Bacon Casserole

Share

This isn’t the best photo, but I love this casserole so much that I had to post the recipe. For me, this is comfort food at its best. I have made this several times in the last couple of weeks and I’d be really happy to eat a serving of this any day. This is […]

Tomato Feta Pasta Salad

Share

If you like feta cheese, black olives, and like a really hearty pasta salad, this recipe is for you. I like all of the ingredients that went into it, and I found the salad to be delicious. It has a lot of flavor – more than your typical pasta salad. For dinner the other night, […]

Crispy Quinoa Sliders

Share

These are perfect for a meatless Monday dinner. You can serve these on buns just like you’d serve a hamburger, with all the classic condiments – lettuce, tomato, ketchup, mayonnaise, etc. You can also serve them as a side dish if you’re not having a meatless meal. I ate mine without a bun and with […]

Macaroni and Cheese with Black Beans and Chipotle

Share

This is my new, favorite macaroni and cheese recipe.   I could eat this every day for a week without getting sick of it, and I almost have, considering I made a lot of it and the boys won’t touch it.   It’s great fresh from the stove, and it’s great as a leftover as well.  When […]

Quinoa Mac and Cheese

I wish I had a perpetual stash of these in my refrigerator. I’ve been eating them for lunch for the past couple of days and I truly think I could eat them every day without getting sick of them. They microwave well, they’re healthy, and nicely filling. I put some smoked mozzarella in mine, and […]

Grilled California Pizzas

Share

We had 8 kids for lunch the other day, and I felt like serving something more interesting than sandwiches, so I decided to make pizza on the grill. My sister Lauren makes it and raves about it so I figured I’d give it a shot as most kids love pizza. Well, most kids except mine. […]

Black Bean and Pepper Jack Burgers

Share

When I saw these burgers pictured in a magazine, they looked exactly like hamburgers to me. When I made them, they also looked a lot like hamburgers.  Once you bite into them though, they taste like a burrito.   These are one of the better bean burgers that I have eaten.   I still love Mark Bittman’s […]

Mexican Lasagna

I really like this recipe, and I’ve made it twice in the last week. It’s easy to throw together – it’s actually the easiest lasagna I’ve ever made – and it’s incredibly good. It’s a perfect weeknight meal for us as we strive to continue to remove meat from our diet.

Today I watched the movie […]
